A TEACHER is suing after slipping on condoms.

December 1, 2009

Another bit of weird news from The Daily Telegraph:

“Karen Hollander is blaming the department for failing to clean up the condoms and other rubbish and claiming that this negligence made the area unsafe.

Hollander said she suffered injuries to her head and nervous system after her fall at the High School of Art & Design in New York City on November 12, 2008.

The suit says school officials failed to maintain safety in the cafeteria by allowing trash that included condoms to pile up on the floor.

“They caused, allowed and permitted condoms to be distributed by school personnel to the students, many of which were opened during the school lunch period and thrown on the floor,” said the suit.”

Now, as an ex-teacher, I would imagine she might have a case against the School’s lunch-time supervisor for allowing them to be thrown on the floor or against the School’s cleaners – IF they normally clean the floor soon after the lunch break – but surely not against the DoE.
